This is something I have been wanting to do for a while. I confess though that fear stopped me. Yes, you read it right, fear. I am one of those people that mindlessly strolls into the kitchen and next thing I know my mouth is full of chocolate. I swear, sometimes I cannot even tell you how it happened! But it happens, more often than I would like to admit. Can I really go 30 days without sugar?
I know sugar is everywhere, and I am not concerned about that in the least. My concern is the mindless eating that I do. What I want to cut is the chocolate, ice cream, and desserts in general. Sometimes when I catch myself standing in front of the kitchen counter with my hand full of M&Ms I shove them all quickly in my mouth as if eating faster would make the calories count less. Crazy, I know!
This challenge for me is about goal-setting, persistence, and follow-through. Is about telling myself I will do something and sticking with it until the end. Unlike the TV challenge where I cut it down how much TV I watched instead of completely eliminating it, for this one I want to go completely without for 30 days. I want to do it for two main reasons: to be able to tell myself that I can, and to hopefully reintroduce these foods in a more mindful way.
This challenge will happen during the month of February and I will be updating it both here and in the Facebook page. Like last time you are welcome to join me in this journey and share your experiences!
